Daniel Craig was forced to halt filming on the latest James Bond instalment, after he fell during a scene last month.
And the 51-year-old has now been spotted on crutches in New York, following surgery to ‘fix’ his ankle.
Sporting a chunky boot cast on his left foot, the 007 star made his way around JFK Airport – opting for a patterned blue shirt and jeans for the day.
The actor even makes a boot cast look cool…
Rachel Weiss’ hubby attempted to go unnoticed for the journey in a Liverpool cap and sunglasses, completing his look with a leather jacket.
This marks Daniel’s first public appearance since having surgery on his foot, after he fell during filming in Jamaica last month, reportedly tearing an ankle ligament during a chase scene.
Understandably, he was fuming over the whole thing, as he spent months getting into shape for the upcoming Bond adventure – which will be released in cinemas next year.
‘Things were deemed to be a disaster at first. But the injury is not as severe as believed and he will be able to film while not over exerting his ankle,’ a source told The Sun.
‘Daniel was furious that he had suffered an injury after spending months getting into prime physical shape.’
While shooting has been pushed back to allow the dad-of-two enough time to recover, this has reportedly thrown the rest of production out of sync.
What’s more, it’s been reported Daniel and new Bond villain Rami Malek still haven’t actually managed to film any scenes together.
Y’know, despite having the main two roles in the movie.
After a string of setbacks, with shooting pushed back to late October, the pair can’t quite make their schedules align.
‘They still need to find a time for Daniel and Rami to film together,’ a source told The Sun on Monday.
‘You can’t have a Bond film where 007 doesn’t come face to face with the villain so it’s a complete nightmare logistically.
‘They are looking at the whole schedule again now and doing everything they can to make it work, but production is going to have to over-run even further now.’
Despite all the setbacks, the team behind the movie are adamant Bond 25 will be released in April.
Bond 25 is scheduled to arrive in cinemas nationwide on 3 April 2020.
